TWO TYPES of data IN THE SAME COLUMN

Hello ,

 

I am looking for a solution for a column that has all the data of my measurements, this column contains percentages, texts, numbers, letters/figures at the same time (example A20). So the type of this column is neither text nor decimal. it's impossible to define a single type for this column.

I need to process the data from my various reports by using this column and sometimes put in the same graph all this data (matrice with text and number)

OTHER QUESTION please (example 'A09' 'A46' 'A26' A.... I HAVE TO AVERAGE ALL THESE NUMBERS AND PUT THE 'A' BACK IN THE RESULTS.

how can I proceed plz ?

 

thank you so much

Re: TWO TYPES of data IN THE SAME COLUMN

@user83 , You can only have one data type for one column. But You can process a similar type of value as per need.
